Firstly thanks to BlackNoah from http://blacknoah.blogspot.com/ for sending me these videos.
As the title states these are promotional videos from the US PS2 version of KOF98UM.
As cheesey as they may be, i really like the 98UM promotional videos made by Ignition and it's a shame they never made their way over to the PAL version of the game (which received a very limited release...).
It's a real shame Ignition US and SNKP have seemingly parted ways as i thought Ignition's online promotions via their Facebook fanpage for KOFXII was excellent.
I saw quite a few photos and videos of the tournament they held in the US as well for XII, with the delicious Kerry Fistell, it's just a shame Ignition US had to work with an unfinished and poorly received game...Watching the backlash after release from fans on the Facebook page was quite harsh, as i know they tried their best to promote the hell out of the game.
Ignition UK on the other hand never even seemed to bother with promoting XII, i even tried to contact their UK office at one point to ask them if they would be interested to help promote the game with our ranking battles for XII by sending some posters or something but they didn't even bother to reply... :-/
Well anyway at least Ignition seem to be working closely with Data East now, another company whose games i enjoy, and i hope that works out for them.
